RE: Feet

Thanks for giving me some hope. I am 23 years old and a third year teacher.
I was diagnosed with heel spurs and plantar fasciitis a year ago and can
barely walk. When I finally went to the doctor, after having suffered for a
full year, he said, "Are you a nurse or a teacher?" I have been on dozens
of medications since then and have scheduled surgery for December 21. Wish
me least I know there is hope out there for my future!

I haven't read all the posts about feet hurting so someone may have said
I'm going to say. Sorry in advance. I've had so much trouble with my
feet.....heel spurs, infections between my toes, can't think of the word for

the psalm of the feet, etc. There were years when I was in such pain I
hardly walk and had trouble finding shoes. I'm happy to say I'm pain free
now. Once you get things like heal spurs the only way I found to get rid of

them is to stay off your feet. Because of having to wear a cast on each of
my feet, the spurs healed. Because I was in such pain I would not walk
properly and would fall. The pain between my toes went away when I wore
sandals and no socks for a good part of last winter and spring and stayed
my feet this summer. I know this is not an option for most of us once the
year starts or at all but it sure helped me. For me shedding a few pounds
helped too. My heart goes out to all of you with this problem. Hang in
there. Eileen
